ChessMood Open with $20,000 prize fund!
Dear chess friends!
I’m super excited to announce that on October 4-12 in Armenia there is going to be ChessMood Open tournament with around $20.000 prize fund.

By the way, right after it, we’re going to have “Yerevan Open” tournament (October 13-22) with a similar prize fund. So you can combine them and play two tournaments.
As there are no border problems at the moment, you can easily travel to Armenia.
Looking forward to seeing you soon and drinking something cold together :)

I watched Daily Lesson with a GM #307 and I got the same theme tactic :)

A big note of appreciation and thank you for Chessmood for uploading these instructional daily lesson with GM (not just for this one tactic but for improving my play! :D)

I solved this tactic, but feel free to leave your answers in the comments!
